Director Statement

I am interested in telling stories that move, touch and/or inspire people, no matter where they are from. I am interested in telling those stories in a beautifully artistic and eye pleasing way. With my background of growing up with a German mother and a Turkish father all over Europe and later on in the US, I bring a vast palette of personal experiences to my view point as a female director.
